We have two different opportunities every Sunday morning. At 9:15 AM, we have our adult Bible study, teen Bible study, and elementary Sunday School hour. All of these opportunities meet as smaller groups throughout our church building. These settings provide: more interaction between our church family, aids to build better relationships, opportunities to share concerns for prayer with one another, opportunities for everyone in the family at the same time, and time to study the Bible together. Our second opportunity on Sunday mornings begins at 10:30 AM – our Sunday morning worship service. We use hymnbooks with a piano, organ, and the beginnings of a small orchestra. The GBC family loves godly music presented with excellence from our church choir, children’s choir, vocalist, and instrumentalists. Our Pastor then preaches a message from the Bible and ends the service with an opportunity to respond to the Lord over the Bible passage we just studied.
Our Sunday night service begins at 6:30 PM. This is a more informal family church service. Most weeks we take time during the church service to greet one another and meet visitors while the instrumentalists play the verse of a hymn. Pastor will lead GBC in a new Bible study…and he will often use a PowerPoint presentation to help aid in communicating the truths of the Word of God.
This is our mid-week Bible study and prayer service. It begins each week at 7 PM. We view our Wednesday night service like “recharging the batteries” in the middle of the week. We have a Bible club for kiddos in K4-6th grades called Kids4Truth (K4T). At the same time as K4T, our Pastor leads a Bible study for the teens and adults, we share specific prayer requests with each other, and then we break up into small groups to pray over each other’s petitions. There is just something about spending time in prayer with another Christian that will challenge you, encourage you, and form a stronger relationship with other believers!
Mother’s Day is a very special day. Mom has labored hard to bring you into this world, and she continues to labor in other ways to help you walk through this life. Mom…you are a blessing to your children! You know Mom’s role is hard, but even more so, Mom’s role is important! Mom — Thank you for being the Mom that God called you to be…we don’t say it enough — love you, Mom!
Real love requires time, work, sacrifice, selflessness…and the Holy Spirit of God (“The fruit of the Spirit is love….”). It’s this…
